PRESS YOUTUBE'S SUBTITLES BUTTON!! There's a human made translation to English AND ORIGINAL IRISH there ;) : More background info about video & my experience learning the language.

Huge thanks to Diarmuid Ó Mathúna for interviewing me and letting me interview him. You can listen to him and others live right now streamed online in Irish on

After a couple of weeks in the Gaeltacht, I took Raidió na Life up on an old offer for an interview on the air, entirely in Irish. My Irish is still not fluent (this level is after 2 months of work in the language as an adult, after a completely disinterested childhood ending with doing the Lower Level examination), but I was happy to have covered a few topics.
I'm hoping that other adults with very weak Irish will see this and perhaps be inspired to give it a try too!
